You may submit your AAR and AER from either the document tab in the task or from the "Document Management" tab on the dashboard. Form 5603 will be referred in the instructions below however the same process is used for Form 5602. If you have been lodging electronic F524 you will already be familiar with these steps.
NB: If you have document authorisation turned on you will not be able to submit the form until it has been authorised.

1b. Submit form from Task-> Document tab
2. The Lodgement screen will appear with a confirm action request. Click Ok
Note: "Final Lodgement" is ticked because this is ASIC Form 5603 - End of Administration return. An AAR lodgement would not have final ticked.

Start new Form
Select Form to be lodged
At Upload page click on Chose file and paste the temp file path into the File name cell and click Open
Once your file is uploaded click NEXT and follow prompts.
One reason why your file may be rejected is because the name registered with ASIC does not match the ACN in the file you are uploading. The full name used in MYOB Insolvency must be exactly the same as the name registered with ASIC.
eg ASIC registered name ABC PTY. LIMITED And the full name in MYOB may be ABC PTY LTD. For ASIC to recognise the name you would need to edit the name in MYOB by entering . after PTY and changing LTD to LIMITED.

If the form has been uploaded but not submitted because the operator does not have authority to do so you can change the lodgement date once the submission has been completed.
